First poppy of the season…

Mar 10, 2010

I planted my Iceland poppies a bit later than I like to last year...I think I got them in the ground late November or early December. So I'd usually have poppies in bloom in February. But with the cold we've experienced perhaps they'd have started blooming late anyway. Here is the first bloom to pop open. It's it geoooorgeous?

Here's a photo of some Iceland poppies we have for sale at NHG...'Champagne Bubbles' mix...

They are lovely. I didn’t plant Iceland poppies last fall, wish I had. Tulip blooms last 3 days here. Iceland poppy blooms last 3 weeks. It’s a wonderful trade-off for the South.
